That is outstanding work, some of the best I have seen. Go Xian go!



I dig Hot Rods as much as I do bikes and have been drawing them for years.
Here are a couple of dead rodders behind the wheel.

Just tried to mix some paint to look like bare metal on this old gastank, I think I nailed it.

Holy Shit Xian.
you really are the bar for craftsmanship when it comes to tooling, dyeing, and overall fit & finish. I am blown away by it all brother. I'd go to a clinic if you ever held one...

here's my contribution...
Just a Taste...
something I have been working on at lunch time the last few days
"Big Wave" Card Wallet. The wave is made from black stingray and white deer suede. The silk underneath will be used as the liner. The Kanji are the symbol for "Hakai" which translates as "Destruction."
-Most of you already know, but for those who don't:
The "Big Wave" symbol, is from a wood block print made in 1838 by the Japanese artist Hokusai. It is one of his 36 Views of Mt Fuji series. In the original, you can see Mt. Fuji in the distance underneath one of the towering white caps. It is not uncommon for this image to be used in Traditional Japanese tatoo work.

Hey Xian,
I am currently building a Triumph bobber.I built my own solo seat and covered it myself.To tell the truth ,I'm not exactly happy with the way it looks....I mean the seat pan itself is great to me but I would like more art work on the leather.If I sent you a template of the pan,could you make me something nice for it?

Man, the leather work never ceases to amaze me, someday I'll put the steel down and try some cow. And the hot rod sketches are great too! Keep'em coming guys.

Xian, in 20 years your seats will be highly prized collectibles by the Swedes and Japanese. Actually in 20 years it might be India and the Chinese.
